Get to Know Me
Helping You Move Forward
I began my journey as a therapist in 2013, looking for a new direction in life that helped others benefit from counselling in the same way I have. I wanted to connect to people and offer them a safe place to explore what was happening in their lives.
The first part of my counselling career was working with people who have experienced domestic abuse and trauma and further expanding my skills working in general counselling practice with a wide range of life experiences. I then went on to work with young people in schools and colleges.
I really value my work as a counsellor and I learn from every single client I work with. It is a real honour to be with clients as they navigate the challenges of life. As a humanist, I support the right of every person to be treated with dignity and respect, and to be allowed to speak, and believe, as they wish
I live in Lancashire with my partner and two dogs. In my spare time I enjoy baking, crafting, nature and the outdoors, restoring our old house and watching films in my pyjamas.
I live with chronic illness and it's been a real challenge balancing work, life and family with keeping myself well. That's why I offer sessions focussed on living well with chronic illness, which draw on my experience as a counsellor and someone who lives each day with chronic illness.
